VIDEO: President Trump blasts Dems in Fox News virtual town hall on coronavirus crisis
Fox News hosted a virtual “town hall” on Tuesday with President Trump, vice-president Mike Pence and members of the White House coronavirus task force in the White House Rose Garden.
The interview session was moderated by Fox anchors Bill Hemmer and Harris Faulkner.
During the questioning, President Trump vowed there is no way he’s signing the stimulus bill proposed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, which includes a list of non-coronavirus-related items.
Fox News noted afterward that the bill “also contains provisions to eliminate debt held by the U.S. Postal Service, require same-day voter registration, pay off $10,000 in student debt per person, and force federal agencies to explain to Congress how they are increasing their usage of “minority banks.””
“Nancy Pelosi came and put a lot of things in the deal that had nothing to do with workers — that had to do with an agenda that they have been trying to get passed for 10 years,” Trump said, adding, “I came in, I told Mike [Pence], I told a lot of people, ‘There is no way I am signing that deal.”
Trump also blasted New York Mayor Andrew Cuomo and brought out a report revealing that Cuomo passed on an opportunity to purchase 16,000 respirators in 2015.
The president stated that America needs to get back to work and said he would like to end the “lockdown” by Easter. He expressed concern about the devastating effects of a long-term lockdown.
